Hi Dan, there’s definitely nothing wrong when fishing for carp from an angling perspective and they can be a challenge on fly. The only problem with them is their invasive nature in our waters. But, they do provide a good opportunity for fishermen.
Incidentally, we also find them in saltwater over here. I’ve attached a pic of one of these “salty carps” caught in a local estuary near the mouth to the ocean. These fish actively feed on shrimp, just like other saltwater flats species.
I’ve also included a pic of a successful pattern we use for them over here.
